HASH(0xa104fe7c) out of 5 stars Somewhat dated, needs significant revision April 19 2011
By Todd Coon - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a pocket manual, as such, is by no means the definitive work on plumbing. It is now in its 10th edition and many of the photos in the book appear significantly dated. So, too, some of the plumbing methods also appear dated, i.e., the use of lead piping (no longer allowed in many jurisdictions); the use of cast iron sewer pipes sealed with oakum and melted lead (again, this has been supplanted by plastic and/or metal piping in many jurisdictions) are particularly anachronistic. While a good primer in a limited way, it is by no means a resource for someone preparing for an exam or looking to ensure plumbing work is in compliance with the code. There are other, more recent books that serve this purpose. This is a book that appears to have been written in the 1930s and only periodically updated as required. It needs a complete re-write to bring it to currency and relevance with modern building codes.

HASH(0xa121d4e0) out of 5 stars A really Plumbers Pocket Manual Sept. 12 2009
By Rudelio Badillo - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have read it fully and I have noticed that some aspects of the plumbing trade not well explained in other books are here very well explained. I considered this pocket manual a must have for every plumber and for serious students of the plumbing trade. I very trully recommends this pocket manual for everyone. It is a small book that you can carry everywhere you go, spcially while sitting in an office waiting your turn, that is where I have read it more. I have read it twice and stil carry it with me every place I go.

Years ago I used Audels book on siding and was so pleased with it , I just knew this would be good. They put things in terms that are easily understood and the graphics really help me visualize what it is they are explaining.
